[ ♪ music ♪ ] there was frightening news from the other side of the pacific today. north korea has vowed to continue testing new nuclear weapons and said it would launch long-range rockets that it claims can reach the united states. this is just after the united nations instituted sanctions on its last rocket launch. it does not seem to have much impact on kim jung-un. a variety of satellites and long long-range rocketses which will be launched one after another we will target the u.s. the sworn enemy of of the american people. settling accounts with the u.s. needs to be done with force not with words as it regards jungle law the rule of its survival. what? the country's belligerent stance is one more issue on the president's full foreign policy plate, and it's going to be a concern for john kerry if he's confirmed secretary of state as he's very likely to be, increasingly likely, as a matter of fact. he got a very warm welcom
're seeking. jon: that's senator john kerry at his confirmation hearing just a short time ago. he is fielding questions one day after the woman he wants to replace, secretary of state hillary clinton, appeared on capitol hill where she delivered a fiery defense of the administration's response to the benghazi terror attack. joining us now, danielle pletka, vice president foreign policy and defense studies, defense policy studies, i should say, at the american enterprise institute. danielle, thanks for being with us. you wrote a column this week in which your first words were it's hard to like john kerry? [laughter] >> well, i worked for ten years up at the senate foreign relations committee when senator kerry wasn't the chairman, he was one of the other members of the committee. he's just not that popular on capitol hill. he hasn't worked well with other members. that was one of the problems he had when he ran for president. he's perceived as being stand offish, as being uninterested in their issues and in being kind of doctrinaire on policy. jon: but bob corker, the new mexico senator -- we'
you for reminding me of that chapter in my public clear and what you and john kerry accomplished together. i want to talk about the role of the united states, it is called upon to negotiate, to make it safer. certainly since world war ii, it has involved nuclear weapons and it does to this day as we discussed the future of nuclear entrance like, god forbid, iran intoork the nuclear club, which we don't want to see happen. we also know there came a new threat, terrorism, in a different form. biological and chemical weapons. organizations that attacked the united states and killed innocent people. but it was, i think last year or the year before, that we were briefed by the state department, department of defense, about the greatest threat to security in the united states and it wasn't either of those things. it was cybersecurity. i think you may have attended the brief, the classified briefing for members of the senate. democrats and republicans. they explained to us this invisible war that goes on even as we meet between the united states and many who are not our friends that are

the democratic nod for president in 2016. president obama has tapped senator john kerry as the next secretary of state. >>> lawmakers in maryland have come up with a compromise in legislation over who is responsible for injuries from dangerous dogs. it would impress the impact of last year's court ruling that pit bulls are inherently dangerous. that decision made pet owners and landlords liable for dog attacks. new law clarifies responsibility and would apply to all breed, not just pit bulls and landlords would only be liable if they know or should have known that a dangerous dog was being housed on their property. >>> the original author of the dear abby advice column has died. funeral services were held yesterday for abigail vanburen. she died wednesday after a long battle with alzheimer's disease. she was 94. giving good advice runs in the family. for decades her column competed with the advice of ann landers, written by her twin sister esther. esther died in 2002ment they were on good terms. the dear abby column has been written by her daughter jean for nine years. >>> 5:35 is our time. t

broadly, on national security, we will enter the beginning of confirmation hearings for john kerry as secretary of state, chuck hagel as secretary of defense. consideration of our military strategy, our military spending, how we project american power as we complete a winding down of the war in afghanistan. it is really going to be the end of a post-9/11 period in national security policy, with the policy going for it from there still unsettled. guest: the will still be a focus on the issues of national security, what just happened in algeria, the issue of al qaeda not being as weak a forceful as president obama campaign on. i think republicans will point that out. if we lost american lives again last week. so what are we doing to keep al qaeda at bay? that will be part of the discussion during the confirmation hearings and certainly with mrs. clinton's appearance tomorrow. host: on the issue of foreign policy, what will be president obama's legacy? where will the focus in his second term? guest: looking back over the first term, he did wind down the war in iraq. he's in the proces
congress before the house and senate both. her likely replacement senator john kerry, it is his nomination hearing tomorrow. the republicans have questions about what the state apartment -- department knew, why were warnings ignored? especially after the recent events in mali intervene and where we were backing them. and in algeria where three more americans at least have been killed. all these things are related. terrorists in algeria were using weapons from libya. all these things are related and the republicans certainly want to use this hearing to make the case that may be the obama administration and hillary clinton and others overstated the fact that al qaeda was on the run. host: secretary clinton will go before the senate foreign relations committee and 9:00 and then the house committee at 2:00 today. do we expect her to have a tougher time in either of those committee hearings? guest: the interesting thing here is both the house and the senate panels have new leadership. on the republican and democratic sides. there are four new leaders on both panels. this will be a chance for th
. host: do his picks for the secretariat of defense statement that? guest: both will be confirmed. kerry is someone who the senators approve of more than secretary rice, who is controversial. senator kerry is much beloved by everyone on capitol hill. john mccain said he would endorse him. that will go through without controversy. both of these men will be confirmed easily. people think the secretary of defense choice is a signal that we will not be as aggressive as somewhat like in defending israel. host: minimum wage. do you expect those issues to gcome up>? guest: the campaign was focused on jobs. the relative lack of direct engagement with how you create jobs during the inaugural address. this was not a set of policy proposals. there will be more about this in the state of the union. it was striking that the focus of the campaign was not terribly reflected in the address he gave yesterday. as far as labor issues, a lot of this is going on in the states. there is a national political aspect to this. i do not know what plans they have for some of these issues. it was interesting yesterd
of state, john kerry, and chuck hagel, which he has gone a lot of flak for it, to the secretary of defense? >> those are promising choices. john kerry may finally liberate himself with a push from chuck a goal. they are going to have to take on the military-industrial complex and reduce those mass of weapons systems that were designed for a soviet-peristyle hostility like the f-22 and nuclear subs. they're going have to cut the military budget down from its $800 billion, and get out of afghanistan and iraq. and whether they have the chemistry and the political fortitude to do so, it remains to be seen. but i think they are a better choice than their predecessors. i think john kerry will be better than hillary clinton, who had to be macho all the time. and panetta, chuck hagel will be better than panetta, who was kind of a fill in. and spent weekends back in california where he really wants to retire. there is a little promise there. but again, it requires the resurgence of mass demonstrations in washington this spring to develop a convergent policy from the militarization of foreign-policy
the hear, the senate will hold a confirmation hearing for john kerry. >>> well, speaking of that deadly attack in libya, the head of the fbi is in tripoli, libya. robert mueller is getting an update on the investigation into last year's killing of the u.s. ambassador, christines from here in the yarr -- chris stevens from here in the bay area and three other americans. there's been little progress on that investigation so far. >>> president obama's inauguration will be held in the nation's capital and many bay area people will be there. it will be especially personal for two bay area women. joan brown of orinda picked up her inauguration tickets yesterday. the retired schoolteacher, she even had her nails done to show her pride. pamela mays is going again and was there last year. >> i'm hoping it won't be so cold like it was last time. the temperatures were just freezing even in the section i was at. people were freezing. >> we worked so hard and to have him reelected. i can't stop grinning. it's really silly and standing in front of the freezer to see what it will feel like, could be o
senator clinton will testify before the senate with the kerry confirmation coming right behind. there will be a lot of focus on the state department and the systems and the internal accountabilities and, it feels to me, like a lot of this was because of just a state department that is stovepiped. it is almost full of sclerosis and unable to attend to the issues of security and make decisions that need to be made in this regard. i think you know --. bill: but with that, to that regard, senator. >> okay. bill: there seems to be this constant theme about folks in washington wanting to know whether or not she was aware on the decision-making as to whether or not adequate security was in place in benghazi. >> right. bill: is that not the heart of this? >> i don't think there is any question she will be asked that especially with some of the cables we've all known about from chris stevens and some of the concerns and the fact, you know, the first thing that people up here want to talk about, bill, is money. that is the very first thing that came out of the arb. that was really disurg
kerry, soon to be secretary of state, he could be fascinating to see how he approaches this hearing. will he be protective of the department he is soon to inherit? will he be protective of his predecessor and look for more aggressive questioning on the house side. they want to know how far up the chain of command this went. back to you. >> brian: comprehensive report, if i was to pick a favorite sound bite, it would be your first one. i thought it was right to the point. i thought the questions were right on. >> steve: the interview of the guy did you? >> oh, yeah. just a coincidence. >> i didn't know that. way to go, brian. >> brian: you owe me four bucks. >> gretchen: all right. now your other headlines. another developing story for you this morning. we just learned that manti te'o is now admitting he lied about his fake girlfriend and her death. he tells katie couric the lie was just a brief one. >> this girl who i committed myself with died on september 12. now i get phone call on december 6 saying that she's alive and i'll be put on national tv two days later and they asked me
